I’m agnostic, should i be walking the Camino de Santiago?
The question was:
I consider myself an agnostic, from a catholic family. I have agreed to join my Uncle on his journey.
He has been travelling from Le Puy in several stages. He was travelling with a friend who can no longer continue. The last stage, for which will be joining him is from Santander, along the northern route.
I am doing the journey for several reasons; firstly to accompany my 73 year old Uncle and because i believe i will simply enjoy the journey, the countryside, Spain’s food, culture and north coast. I’m very much looking forward to it.
Am i wrong for contemplating this journey? I will obviously respect other’s travellers faith, but I am a little anxious about undertaking this journey as a ‘non believer’.
I’d appreciate your opinions & advice.
